Days after a Street man was shot and killed in his home and a visitor to Eden Mill Park was robbed in broad daylight, the Harford County Sheriff’s Office had no new information to make public in either case, and is seeking leads and suspects in both.
Sheriff’s Office spokesman Lt. Michael Crabbs said police continue to look for three suspects, described as African-American men with their faces partially covered and wearing non-descript clothing, who broke into a home in the 1200 block of Trappe Road and fatally shot Thomas Anderson, 38, in an apparent robbery.
Crabbs had no further updates in the case, which he said remains a “very active” investigation.
Information is also sought in the daylight armed robbery Wednesday of a man walking in Eden Mill Park. According to police, William Welk, 32, of Shrewsbury, Pa. was exiting the park with friends when the group was accosted at gunpoint by two African-American men in their 20s. The pair demanded and received Welk’s wallet before fleeing in a dark-colored car.
According to Crabbs, a short time later a deputy in an unmarked police car observed a dark-colored vehicle at a 7-Eleven in Jarrettsville and observed the car until a single individual exited the store and got into the car. Deputies stopped the man, who Crabbs said was cooperative, answered questions, and allowed a search of his vehicle. The victims of the armed robbery were asked to identify the man, but confirmed that he was not involved; the individual was subsequently released.
Anyone with information concerning either case is asked to contact police via the methods listed below.
